. >> can you win these debates with just a good one liner, with, you know, you're not jack kennedy, i knew jack kennedy, with there you go again. is that enough, the quick line? >> no, i don't think so. you do prepare lines, both sides will, whether they admit it or not. and i think the responses, the counter punches are often more important and that requires whit, not just preparation. that's hard to make up for. but so i do think that it matters, but it's the overall performance that matters. i feel sorry for these candidates because there's a bunch of people sitting around the room telling them to do ten impossible things and at the end saying be yourself. you know, the challenge here. but i do think that some -- you do prepare some lines, but romney's challenge is to make a consistent, critique of the president, but also to convince people that he cares about the concerns of average americans which is a problem that was raised by the 47% comment which is something that obama can easily press during this debate and i think romney's going to have to have a good, consistent set of answers
